This cream of mushroom soup is healthy comfort food at its best! It's creamy, savory, and absolutely delicious.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 2 medium leeks, white and light green parts, sliced (2 cups)
  • 2 celery stalks, diced
  • 16 ounces cremini mushrooms, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons tamari
  • ¼ cup dry white wine
  • 2 large garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 pound cauliflower, broken into florets (5 cups)
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Topping/serving options:

  • Drizzle of coconut milk
  • Crusty bread, toasted as croutons or served on the side
  • Additional mushrooms, sautéed
  • Toasted pine nuts
  • Microgreens or tender thyme leaves

Instructions

  • Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the leeks, celery, ¼ teaspoon salt, and cook 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms and cook until soft, 8 to 10 minutes more.
  • Stir in the tamari, wine, garlic, and thyme and cook for 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until the wine has evaporated. Add the broth and the cauliflower.
